Short Update: Madrid Bar publishes guide on protecting lawyers’ health while protecting defence rights

FairTrialsAdmin - April 2, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Remote Justice, Access to lawyer

On 25th March the Madrid Bar published guidance on protecting health of lawyers while protecting defence rights (in Spanish). 

The guide highlights, amongst other things, the urgent need for suspects and victims in police and judicial custody to have access to confidential means of remote communication with their lawyers (such as via videolink). Where a lawyer’s presence is required in person, the guide sets out social distancing and hygiene requirements to be followed.
